Castles returns to Telestream as Puopolo steps down from CEO role
Dan Castles, one of Telestream’s original founders, has returned as CEO to lead the company through its next phase. Scott Puopolo, who has served as CEO of Telestream since 2017, has decided to step down as CEO.
Eli Weiss, managing director of Genstar Capital, Telestream’s majority shareholder, commented: “We are grateful for Scott Puopolo’s many contributions to the company. Scott has been a great partner to Genstar in our efforts to grow and expand Telestream. As we embark on a new decade which promises to bring fundamental changes to the broadcast industry, we are excited to have Dan rejoin Telestream to help drive its growth strategy and continue to lead the industry.”
Under Castles’ 20-year leadership, Telestream experienced consistent year-on-year revenue growth, and strong profitability. The company has become a leader in enterprise-class video transcoding, quality assurance, and workflow solutions, addressing the numerous video format and device incompatibilities and service disruptions encountered when delivering video over any network.
